The New Forest is enjoyed by millions of people every year, the majority of visits (13.5 million) are by day trip visitors (including those who live within the forest). Almost 1 million visits include an overnight stay (3 million nights) and the majority of those are by UK residents. Tourism creates over 7980 jobs in the forest and generates nearly £400 million in tourism expenditure. The quality of life in the forest is the primary reason for visits and people come to enjoy the clean air, recreation and tranquillity.
The New Forest Visitor Information Centre is located in the Main Car Park in Lyndhurst and provides a service to visitors and local people.
Advice on walking in the forest can be given along with information on accommodation, events and attractions. Please contact the New Forest Visitor Information Centre for further information.
